    Dam Square
    Stop: 2 hours -
    Meet your guide at The National Monument on Dam Square, from where you'll start your visit. Delve into the alternative scene that makes Amsterdam a must-visit destination for visitors interested in subcultures. Explore such facets of Amsterdam society as the post-WWII housing crisis that led to the phenomenon of living in boats or in squats, and the counterculture movements that developed into today’s unmatched cityscape of unique coffee shops and street art. This is the real Amsterdam - the side of the city that locals love, and that visitors come to experience. This tour is a must for anyone really wanting to really experience this unique city!

    Mark is a brilliant guide and he shared with us many interesting historical moments and consequences along the tour, with less tourist groups but definitely more fun!

    We had a super trip around Amsterdam led by the incomparable Raven. Raven showed us all her favourite parts of the city that in her opinion make Amsterdam the City it is today. Her tour is full of historical facts and figures and helped me to learn much about the development of

    Have done alternative walking tours in other cities and really liked the local insight. Disappointed with our tour yesterday. Felt it was more of a march than a walk. Did not point out anything on the way between stops and when we stopped by Anne Frank's statue, although he told

    Hi KarenJ2334, Thank you for sharing your experience with us and for joining the tour in Amsterdam. We love to hear back from engaged travellers such as yourself, as your feedback helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect of us. We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met on this occasion. Whilst the tour’s route and content are listed on our website, the independent guides we work with may alter the tour in order to suit their own style and each group’s dynamic. We feel this adds a personal touch that makes tours promoted by SANDEMANs fresh and unforgettable, but it may also mean that the tour’s stories and sites are not in line with every guests’ preferences which, unfortunately, can be a difficult situation to avoid. While on the whole, the vast majority of guests are extremely satisfied, we do state on our promotional material that all the tours do differentiate from one another due to the individual nature of the guides we work with. Thank you once again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. All the best, The SANDEMANs Team

    Hi samahelkhayat, Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and for joining the tour of Amsterdam. We really appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continue making improvements and ensure that tours and experiences promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe meet the high standards that travellers expect. As many guests use the tour as an introduction to the city, we do offer people the opportunity to purchase tickets for tours, experiences and excursions, should they find something that is of interest to them. We are sorry to hear that, on this occasion, you felt as though the promotion of other tours was too heavy, and we have shared your feedback with the local operations team. The Free Tour is described as such because there is no maximum or minimum amount any guest is expected to tip; the idea is that every guest should feel comfortable to tip in such a way that reflects their individual budget and what they thought the tour was worth. Any guest who does not wish to tip may decline to do so, and the guides we work with are aware that pressuring guests to tip goes against the Free Tour philosophy. We are truly sorry if your experience did not reflect that. This is not only detrimental to your enjoyment of the tour but undoes much of the hard work of ourselves and the other guides we work with to promote the concept of a free tour. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with us, we hope this experience will not prevent you from joining us again in the future. Kind regards, The SANDEMANs Team
